According to the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the provincial People’s Committee issued Plan No. 220/KH-UBND on November 25, 2011, on the coordination.

The department has sent documents to cities and provinces, asking for joint efforts in building the dossier, and partnered with the Vietnam National Academy of Music to conduct research studies and organise seminars.

The sides have identified the targeted heritage – Mo Muong, a collection of verses recited at traditional Muong funerals.

Among the localities that are reviewing the list of Mo Muong, the central province of Thanh Hoa has done the work.

Participants at the conference looked into tasks of the localities, the progress of the dossier building and next steps, along with capital allocation for the project.

Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Hoang Dao Cuong stressed that the building of the dossier is an urgent task.

He said the localities should send the dossier to the ministry by December this year, which will be assessed before January 31, 2023 and submitted to UNESCO no later than the end of March 2023.

However, the work remains sluggish, he said, asking Hoa Binh and other localities to speed up and outline a specific roadmap, with quality and efficiency ensured.

Bui Van Khanh, Deputy Secretary of the provincial Party Committee and Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, spoke highly of opinions raised by experts and localities, which, he said, will help Hoa Binh consolidate and complete the dossier soon./.
